about

In addition to information included in "standard" biomedical and health care resources, such as peer-reviewed journals, texts, and reference books, Health of Native People of North America includes references to specialized resources like associations, publications, dissertations, agency and committee reports, audiovisual materials, and book chapters. While these "other" resources are often left out of more traditional guides and indexes, many of them were written by members of the Native community or by those with an intimate understanding of Native ways. Hence, they can provide unique and valuable insight into the many professional, personal and cultural issues inherent in providing healthcare services to the Native community. Gray has also included information on health organizations, facilities and agencies serving the Native community, as well as information on educational programs for healthcare professionals that address Native cultural issues.
Sharon A. Gray works in the Information Services Department at the Health Sciences Library at SUNY in Buffalo, NY.

Editorial Reviews

This is the first book-length treatment of the topic as a whole and thus is a welcome addition to the bibliographic and research literature on Native Americans... an excellent introductory chapter treats concepts of Indian health and the role US and Canadian governmental health care services have played. The multidisciplanary coverage, the access provided to 'fugitive' literature such as organization publications and book chapters, and the inclusion of the works of many Native authors are valuable contributions. Recommended for all Native American and health collections.
